Mariah Cox – Ag Research – Plant Systems

Mariah has participated in science fairs since the fourth grade and found that she enjoyed the scientific research process and sharing her results with the judges.

Her SAE research has focused on three projects, all related to plant science.  She first identified properties of potato starch and their applications to plant-based packaging.  Secondly, she compared two varieties of raspberries in terms of phenolics and anthocyanins.  And finally, she worked in a lab in Hyberabad, India testing plots of vegetable soybeans.

Cox is supported by her parents, Rachel and Paul, and her FFA advisors, Jennifer Johnston and Aaron Miller.
